Ericsson and Bioforce boost TIACA’s Shippers’ Advisory Council

Published on : Monday, November 7, 2016

TIACARobert Mellin, Engagement Lead Logistics at Ericsson Industry & Society, has been appointed Vice Chairman of TIACA’s Shippers’ Advisory Council (SAC).

Mellin was promoted from Council member to Vice Chair, and is joined by Bernhard Baertschi, Head of Export at Bioforce AG, the newest member of the Council, which was set up earlier this year to give shippers a stronger voice in the supply chain.

The Council met in full at TIACA’s 28th Air Cargo Forum (ACF), which was attended by close to three thousand industry decision makers in Paris, France in the last week of October.
“In these rapidly changing times, the voice of the shipper will prove an invaluable contribution to the continued improvement of the air freight industry,” said Mellin.

“The Council will crucially give shippers a platform where they can better collaborate and collate with the entire air cargo community, to help create a more successful future for us all.”

Mellin has over 20 years’ experience in the logistics and transport industry and held senior roles at Kuehne + Nagel, and Nokia, before joining Ericsson in 2010.

Bernhard brings over 30 years of experience in supply chain management, having worked at Swissair, Crossair, DHL Express, and Skycell prior to joining Bioforce this year.

“Pharma is the fastest growing region of the air cargo market, and we are delighted to bring representation of this community into the new committee,” said Bernhard.

TIACA’s ACF saw 78 industry experts lead over 16 sessions on topics including Manufacturing Trends Affecting the Industry, Disruptive Innovation, and the Cargo Hub of the Future, as well as practical workshops on the latest security and Customs regulations.

TIACA hosted CargoLinX, an on-line meeting scheduler, which allowed visitors to pre-book hundreds of meetings with 45 leading global air cargo companies.

“Robert brings with him a passion and strong dedication to improving our industry and we look forward to his leadership,” said Lars J.T. Droog, Chairman, SAC, and Head of EMEA Supply Chain at Tosoh Corporation.

“The shipping of pharmaceuticals is a significant sector of air cargo, and we are pleased to have Bioforce join the Council.”

TIACA’s Shippers’ Advisory Council also includes representatives from Tosoh Corporation, Chanel Fragrances and Beauté, and Sandvik Machining Solutions.
